CDC was commissioned by CJ O’Shea Limited to offer Computation Fluid Dynamics services to this high rise residential development located in the heart of Greenwich in London.
The tower has been developed with Galliard Homes and comprises a 45 story residential tower with restaurant and bar areas on the upper two floors. The building sits upon a large 2 story podium and basement car parking.
CDC was commissioned to support the Contractor, CJ O’Shea Limited, to offer Fire Engineering CFD modelling services to the development. This work related modelling of the large scale basement car parking floors, which were formed as part of an extension to the existing car park area.
The basement car park area, implemented a large scale car stacking system in addition to traditional car parking areas.
The CFD modelling was successfully able to demonstrate that a reduction in the number of fans would still achieve the requirements for smoke extraction within the development
The CFD modelling was reviewed and approved by both Building Control and Fire Services organisations as part of the approval process.
